Chris Cloud graduated from Florida State University and earned his law degree from Mississippi College of Law. He is licensed to practice in all State and Federal Courts located in Florida and Mississippi.
Chris brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Cloud Law Firm. Before joining the firm, Chris spent several years representing accident victims at a personal injury firm. He then practiced insurance defense for more than a decade at a well-respected law firm in Tampa, Florida. During that time, he prosecuted and defended numerous tort and quasi-contract claims for both plaintiffs and defendants. These cases ranged from minor trip and fall claims to complex aviation cases involving numerous fatalities. However, his defense practice focused mainly on lawsuits filed against a particular Fortune 100 company involving car, pedestrian, bicycle, motorcycle, and trucking accidents. During his time practicing for the defense, Chris learned the strategies and techniques insurance companies employ to lessen or avoid claims.
Over the last 14 years, Chris has successfully prosecuted numerous claims on behalf of plaintiffs, including personally obtaining a $1.7 million judgment against a defendant in a Federal product liability case. He has also participated in the successful defense of innumerable defendants, including several cases that were ultimately tried to a defense verdict. At the Cloud Law Firm, Chris now focuses his efforts entirely on effective representation of accident victims.
